Seahawk Michael Bennett Claims Police Threatened Him, Racism

This is one that is all over the news this morning, both regular and the sports sites, which I’ve caught in multiple places while perusing the same

(Daily Caller) Bennett released a statement Wednesday morning claiming he was the target of racism and police brutality after being detained by Las Vegas police officers. He also claimed police threatened to shoot him in the head.

According to Bennett

USA Today says that his treatment is a reason for all the protests. Colin Kaepernick said it was disgusting and unjust. There are all sorts of people saying all sorts of things in solidarity with Bennett and hating on the police. But, as the DC links to a TMZ Sports report

Sources connected to the investigation tell TMZ Sports … when cops responded to the club for a possible shooting, they ordered everyone to get down and not move so they could properly search and investigate.

We’re told Bennett did not stay put — instead, he ran — and a cop outside the club stopped him and ordered him down to the ground at gunpoint.

Our sources say Bennett was detained until cops could determine he was not involved in any possible criminal activity … and he was released.

You can watch the video at TMZ yourself. It does start, let’s remember, after he was already cuffed. And, yes, it is a possibility that the officer was a complete moron and said he’d shoot him in the head. But, just because a cop detains you when you run doesn’t make it racism.

But, you can bet that the reality of what happened will not make it past the Narrative, much like the completely phony Michael Brown hands up don’t shoot garbage.

    Yeah i was listening to ESPN radio this morning and it was entirely one-sided discussions. Bennett was a victim, he ran because he feared for his life, if he was a white linebacker running from the scene we have to ask if this would have happened, everybody knows that blacks are victims of racist cops, we have to figure out how to educate black people about how to deal with racist cops, how to train cops better… blah blah blah.

    No discussion about Bennett disobeying direct orders in an active shooter situation. No discussion about him running when the police said to get down. Blacks disobeying police are victims of racism. Whites disobeying police get what they deserve.

    In the video, there are many, many blacks leaving the casino, being helped and not being arrested by the police. Only the one who bolted and jumped over a wall was arrested by two hispanic police officers.
